COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sweet Baby Jesus Chocolate Peanut Butter Porter is a complex, robust porter. It is jet black in color with a tan, rocky head, full body and creamy, luxurious mouthfeel. Its lightly sweet, malty flavor is accented by strong notes of chocolate, coffee and peanut butter, and balanced by a subtle hop character and moderate 6.5% abv. Sweet Baby Jesus finishes smooth, dry and roasty with notes of chocolate, espresso and peanut butter so tasty, you’ll have no choice but to exclaim the name!

12oz bottle poured into a New Belgium snifter. This one had me excited. I love chocolate, peanut butter anything, so this one felt right up my alley. Unfortunately it left a little to he desired. Don’t get me wrong, this brew wasn’t terrible, but the execution could’ve been so much better. Pour was a deep, dark brown with a thin to nonexistent head that dissipated quickly. Nose was just decadent. Beautiful notes of chocolate and peanut butter that makes smelling it a treat in itself. Straight up homemade pb cup. Unfortunately the taste doesn’t quite follow. There’s chocolate and peanut butter for sure. Even a little roasted malt present. However, the peanut butter was a little too pronounced for my taste. Also, a little less carbonation and a little more viscosity would’ve done this one wonders. Overall, it’s a smooth brew with an interesting angle, that just wasn’t executed as well as it could’ve been. My first from Duclaw, and I wasn’t impressed.

It was like drinking a Reece’s Peanut butter cup. Amazing aroma of peanut butter and chocolate, and did not disappoint on the palate. However, I’m a big chocolate and peanut butter guy anyway. Medium-bodied with flavors of roasted malt, peanut butter and notes of chocolate. Sweet finish and a good ’one and done’ beer.

TreborWhip (392) - Reading, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 30, 2013
Bottle pours almost black with tan head. Aroma of chocolate. Flavors of chocolate, peanut butter, and roasted malts with a creamy mouthfeel. Nice porter. Like a liquid peanut butter cup.

On draft. Aroma of scratch-n-sniff peanut butter. Flavors of a pleasantly chalky peanut butter, chocolate. Slightly odd aftertaste keeps this one from a higher score, but still a very good beer.

16oz pour at the Wharf Rat. Pours a inky brown with some creamy off white head. Nose is like a snickers that got smashed in your pocket, milk chocolate, nutty, malt, a little raspberry too. Flavor has lots of chocolate, malt, mild almond. Sweet finish. Chick beer.

Awesome aroma. Weak on flavor. Had this at a Christmas tasting party. Thanks Doug for a great tasting!

this would have been better if it had been served cooler (my bad) but even so, pretty good, though the aroma was better than the flavor itself.

Brownish-black pour with a medium khaki head that recedes steadily. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of chocolate, peanut butter and malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of roasted malt, peanut butter and sweet chocolate. The finish is roasted nuts and chocolate. Decent overall.
